Our grower received this okra from a man named Mercer, who had received it from his grandfather in the late 1960's. This okra is said to be passed down from some of the original Tennessee homesteaders and grown for generations. Pick at finger-length for superb pickles, or slice the ribbed pods and fry. Plants grow to 6-7 feet tall and are drought tolerant.

What are the pros? Fast germination
What are the cons? None
This okra is great! I nicked the seed coat and soaked them in water overnight and got germination in about 5 days. On top of that we had a light cold spell/frost and these little plant just shrugged it off while my grandmothers Clemson spineless had to be replanted. Excellent plant so far can't wait for the harvest!

What are the pros? fast germination
What are the cons? none
So excited, I had to write a review. Using Oasis cubes( soaked with purified water and diluted fish emulsion) and a seedling heat mat to germinate, they popped in 1 day! I soaked them overnight, and the day after i sewed them in the tray, they popped. It should be noted that these are older seeds, packed for 2013 ( it is now 2014). Amazing, never seen anything like that.
